Publisher's Summary

James S.A. Corey delivers compelling SF that ranks with the best in the field. In Leviathan Wakes, ice miner Jim Holden is making a haul from the rings of Saturn when he and his crew encounter an abandoned ship, the Scopuli. Uncovering a terrifying secret, Jim bears the weight of impending catastrophe. At the same time, a detective has been hired by well-heeled parents to find a missing girl, and the investigator’s search leads him right to the Scopuli.

    "Absolutely an amazing experince"

    This book had me hooked and wouldn't let go. James Corey is a very talented author that makes all his work feel very real and every interaction to feel human and tangible. I would recommend anyone to give this a shot, there is so much for everyone. Love, action, mystery, suspense, space, science, sex, a perfect concoction of literary genius. Jefferson Mays does a very good job in my opinion. The characters feel unique and very fit to form, at no point did I feel the voice acting was lacking.

    "Good ending, but slow to start."

    I liked the book, but it really spent a long time building up to the climax. I also didn't appreciate the amount of language.

    "Love this series!"
    What did you love best about Leviathan Wakes?

    The depth of the characters and the situations they find themselves in makes this a great series beginner.


    Have you listened to any of Jefferson Mays’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    May's performance of this story was solid! The voice he gave each character was believable and seemed to fit perfectly. Well done!


    Any additional comments?

    The third book in this series is a great story as well but...the narration was a stinker. Suffer through it...or skip it. I stuck with it.

    "A great thriller set within our Solar System"

    As much as I love space opera and aliens, it was nice to read such a well-paced and exciting book set in our Solar system. The political tensions between Mars, Earth and The Belt make up much of the conflict, and the world building does a good job of immersing you in the Belt.

    "Loved this story "

    I really liked the characters in this story.

    Prior to listening to this book I had listened to another looong story that was brutal (both the story and the narration). Because of that I was a bit leery to start another long story - but where as with the previous book it seemed long and never ending, I didn't. want this one to end. That's why I've already bought and downloaded the next book in the series - and I'm going to start it right now.

    "Annoying narrator"

    Couldn't finish. I enjoy space dramas, but the narrator's delivery was nothing short of pompous. I may see if I can borrow the book to read. Save your credit.

    Story
    "Interesting"
    What did you like best about Leviathan Wakes? What did you like least?

    I started to read this because of the SyFy series "The Expanse". Typically TV/Movies based on a book are not as good, but after reading this I think the TV drama was better. I mean I like the book, it was gut wrenching, but the political intrigue of the TV version was far more captivating and had more settings.

    So, what I liked best was the setting, Mars, Earth, OPA - belters. All the intrigue therein.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene where the Donnager was taken out by the mysterious stealth ships. Captain Yao was so confident in the Capital Ship, the Martians are so arrogant, and they were PWNED.


    Was Leviathan Wakes worth the listening time?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Captain Holden is a sanctimonious, egotistical bastard. I cannot stand him, I will take the TV version any time.

    "great mix of tech, space, people, and plot"

    The characters were quite memorable, and the ending wasn't what i wanted. But the universe is very believable with just enough details to pull you into the story.

    Enjoyed it immensely. Enjoy the extra detail that could not be included in the Television show. Looking forward to the next.

    "Excellent read."

    Leviathan Wakes was thoroughly entertaining. I went in blind, and loved it beginning to end.
